Jill Biden spoke about her 45-year marriage to Joe Biden in a recent interview in which she used the word “fexting,” possibly not knowing what it actually means. Jill told Harper’s Bazaar that she and the president fight their “occasional” fights over text messages, describing the act as “fexting.”
Jill may have assumed the term was an amalgamation of the words “fighting” and “texting,” but it actually has an obscene meaning. According to Urban Dictionary, the word refers to “f**king while texting.” The word can be used in various other contexts, but it is never slang for SMS combat.
Urban Dictionary says the word can also be used to describe a text sent by one girl, usually to another, that is full of fakes. “A text sent by a girl (usually to another girl) full of fakery. Being fake includes pretending to like her when all you really want to do is smack her in the face, complimenting her when you’re really just making fun of her, and/or saying you need to hang out , although you’d actually rather stab yourself in the eye,” says the dictionary.
Other contexts in which “fexting” is used include exchanging Facebook messages “with extremely sexual content” between two parties. It can also refer to “fake SMSing,” the act of pretending to send a text message on your cell phone when someone you don’t want to see or greet is walking right past you.
Jill told Harper’s Bazaar that she began practicing when she was second lady. She would argue with her husband over text messages, she said, rather than arguing with him loudly in front of the Secret Service. The couple apparently still “fucks” and Jill shared how she wrote something extremely hurtful to her husband during an argument. The president reportedly had to remind them that their text and email exchanges are preserved as part of a historical record of each presidency. “Joe said, ‘You know this is going to go down in history. There will be a record of that.” I won’t tell you what I called him at the time,” she told the magazine.
However, Jill is generally supportive of her husband despite the spats, she revealed. “I’m trying to support Joe because I don’t know how many people say to him, ‘That was great. That was brilliant.’ I try to be that person for him,” she said. “Some days I see Joe and I’m just like, ‘I don’t know how you do that.’ It’s the pandemic and then the war and then the economy and then gas prices. You feel like you’re getting hit.”
On the same day this interview was published, a new poll by Rasmussen Reports found that only 43% of likely voters approve of the president’s job performance and 55% disapprove. His approval rating was just 38% in a recent poll conducted by Emerson.
